Summary

In this chapter, we discussed the processes that are the best if you want to design charts, from understanding the requirements, to data discovery, through to an iterative discovery cycle. We discussed the best practices in chart design and data visualization, reviewed the chart types that best answer which types of questions, and explored data dimensions and measures. We also discussed the different impacts that discrete and continuous data elements have on visualizations. Lastly, we talked about the use of reference and trend lines in views.

In the next chapter, we will talk about how to create calculated fields and table calculations.
